Before you start, review Heritage Victoria's guiding principles and discuss your proposal with Heritage Victoria.
Heritage Victoria offers pre-application meetings where details of the application and information to be submitted are discussed. This can help to ensure your application has considered Heritage Victoria’s concerns, your documentation is complete, and can reduce delays from further information having to be sought during the assessment stage.
We can provide:
- feedback on how the proposal may affect the heritage significance
- advice on the appropriate heritage approval process
- advice on what additional information you need to supply with your application
- information on how your application will be processed.
Pre-application meetings are available on request.

Any commentary made by Heritage Victoria during a pre-application meeting and in subsequent correspondence should not be interpreted as acceptance or refusal of a proposal. Permit applications are determined following consideration of the application against relevant policies and the criteria of the Heritage Act.
